Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Start your day with early morning pickup from your Agra hotel.

Head to the Taj Mahal to see the sun rise over the World Heritage Site that was built in the 1600s by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the tribute to the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

Return to your hotel for breakfast, then visit the second World Heritage Site of the day, the Agra Fort. The imposing red sandstone fort was built by emperor Akbar in 1565 AD, with a design that combines both Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles.

Take a break for lunch at an air-conditioned restaurant, then depart the city for the 1-hour drive to Fatehpur Sikri, the third World Heritage Site that you visit on the tour. The elegant walled 16th-century city's buildings remain largely intact to this day, and have been described as 'the world’s most perfectly preserved ghost town,' Fatehpur Sikri was built in the late 16th century and was abandoned after only 14 years.

Return to Agra and wrap up your tour by shopping for marble and soft stone inlay handicrafts, in addition to other crafts. At the end of the day, your guide returns you to your hotel or to the train station in Agra.

The Sunrise Taj Mahal, Agra Fort tour was more than we expected. While there was plenty of fog when arrived we still enjoyed and appreciated the spectacular view of the Taj Mahal at 6:30am. It was great that at that time of the morning we didn’t have a huge crowd. We were able to get great photos. I do regret it wasn’t perfectly clear but still there was something special about seeing this great work of art for the first time with the mist. We stayed a couple of hours and as our tour guide told us the fog did burn off. Of course as it burned off the crowd grew larger. The Taj Mahal is even more spectacular as the sun hits the building. The combination Ot the white marble and the many stones in laid in the marble mark for a beautiful sparkling effect. Next we visited Agra Fort. A very large and beautiful fort . Learned a lot about the history of India. Well worth seeing. Finally, we chose not to visit the last site (an hour drive there and back and at least and tour would have meant a full 12 hour day. Instead our Guide took us to a mausoleum sometimes called “Little Taj”). little Taj was very interesting and we enjoyed seeing it. All in all a great day with a great guide and driver.

I absolutely loved everything about this tour, especially the guide Mahesh, and the driver KK. Mahesh is so knowledgeable about India’s history, and KK, one of the best drivers we’ve had in the country. We had great conversations with both of them, whom are so friendly and respectful. Just AMAZING!

This tour overall was really good, my guide Vinnet Goyal was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and funny, we had a great time together visiting the Taj and Agra Fort. I would recommend him as a guide to any family or friends. My only comment would be about our trip to the marble carving company, where I was able to see how the marble and precious stones are carved. This is a cool portion of the tour and would recommend seeing the process. Their finished products are very beautiful. However, the prices I encountered were 300-500 above what they should have been. I understand that this is common and I wasn't forced to make any purchases whatsoever, but coming from someone that travels very often I didn't appreciate it. If I were on a time constraint it would have bothered me as it can hinder your ability to see another sight in Agra. This is not a complaint but more of a recommendation to others hoping to make the same trip. As previous mentioned, Vineet Goyal was a great guide and I would highly recommend him if you hope to see the Taj and Agra Fort.

I have been traveling for business in India only had a weekend to explore Agra and Delhi, given that I wanted to get the most out of my time I decided to take the train into Agra Friday night and I booked the 'Sunrise Taj Mahal and Agra city tour' through Pacific Classic Tours India. I am so glad that I did! Our guide, Rishi Pal, was incredible, he was waiting on time for us at 6 am ready to walk us to the Taj from our hotel and fill our heads with more knowledge than you would think one person could possibly contain, a trend that never ceased through the whole day. Rishi kept us laughing all morning and helped us get all the photos necessary to keep our family and friends jealous back home. He always seemed to find beautiful and quiet spots to walk us through the history of each of the monuments we visited during the day, despite the nearly overwhelming weekend crowds. Speaking of crowds Rishi knew all of the routes through each monument ensuring the least traffic and with him long queues seemed to just disappear. The shopping portion of the day was accompanied by a few persistent vendors and admittedly I did make a few purchases but I do not regret any of them. I really appreciated getting to see how these fine crafts were produced. And it was fun haggling the prices! We had an earlier train to catch on our way back to Delhi that we were a little nervous about but Rishi made sure we didn't have to stress about it a single moment, he even squeezed the sunset from the Moonlight Gardens which we though we would have to skip. At the end of the day he accompanied us right to the train car to ensure a smooth departure. If you only have short period of time to get the most from Agra I would absolutely recommend taking this tour, you will not be disappointed!

Our guide, Mr. Mahesh, was superb. There was not a single questions he couldn't answer for us and he spoke very good English. Our driver for the day, Bipin, was also the best driver we had during our entire trip to India. I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was very flexible and asked us before we did anything if we needed a break, more water, or wanted to skip something we weren't particularly interested in. He also gave us plenty of time at each stop to explore the grounds ourselves. The guide and driver were both always on time, courteous, and knowledgable. The only thing that could have made this better was cooler weather!
